We really enjoyed the location of this hotel, the room itself however was not our favorite. Being a love motel, the bathtub was right in the middle of the room. Together with the tiles all over the floor of the room, i felt more like the bed was in the middle of the bathroom. It smelled a quite damp as...

This is what Japan used to call a "love hotel," meaning that most people check in for a couple of hours only. Not bad if you are aware before you go, but you need to expect passionate neighbors, and less than clean rooms (our first room had a bed full of pubic hair--the staff were happy to move us to...

Great Location, great fun, great WiFi, loved this place. Place is quirky and definitely awesome if your a couple or close friends. We got the spa Suite, definitely doing this again. Staff spoke great English or Japanese, very helpful. 2 computers in the room, great surround sound system. Iphone dock as well. Jongno is a great area, food vendors everywhere,...

I have always wanted to try out love hotels, didn't get to while in Japan so decided to go for it in Seoul. I read that compared to Japan, love hotels in seoul is not sleazy at all. Yup! Not at all, well, at least not this one, not to us. Eventhough the hotel is in an alleyway, which is...

A couple of minutes' walk from Jongno 3-Ga metro station, we found this hotel ideal for an exploration of Seoul's Insadon district: surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants, yet quiet inside. Rooms are clean, have TV and 2 (two!) PC terminals with free internet. Excellent option for a short stay, but probably not for longer.

Let it be known this is a love hotel. Most clients are twenty something Koreans renting for three hours to have the kind of fun they can't have under mom and dad's roof. That said, the place is not sleazy at all. It's clean comfey and has great amenities and fantastic service. Slightly gritty but fun neighborhood and about a...

I stayed at this hotel after staying at the Prince Hotel for about a week. I was pleased to stay in the Hello Kitty room for one night. Pros: It was close to the subway station, free drinks in fridge, cute decor, biggish room Cons: I honestly did not mind that the hotel is a "love" motel, but my room...

Great Wifi service, cheeky and playful staffs and excellent service. Discretion is the integrity of this hotel which came in handy and the situation I had when abruptly wrong. The staff handled it professionally until the situation came to a conclusion. Apart from the great facility the hotel offers a superb convenient location. Though the room is abit small it...

There are three Hotel Pops in this alley and this is a review for Hotel Pop 1. Basically a "love motel," but that's great because you get a larger-than-average, nicely designed and romantic room. Each room has a different pop style (such as Hello Kitti). Large tub for two, flat screen TV and sound system. LAN Internet was strong. Short...

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighbourhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
